Invisible Beasts free pdf Orion Book Award Finalist"O, The Oprah Magazine" Title to Pick Up Now An amazing feat of imagination. "Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "Invisible Beasts" is a strange and beautiful meditation on love and seeing, a hybrid of fantasy and field guide, novel and essay, treatise and fable. With one hand it offers a sad commentary on environmental degradation, while with the other it presents a bright, whimsical, and funny exploration of what it means to be human. It s wonderfully written, crazily imagined, and absolutely original. ANTHONY DOERR, author of "All the Light We Cannot See" and "The Shell Collector" Sophie is an amateur naturalist with a rare genetic gift: the ability to see a marvelous kingdom of invisible, sentient creatures that share a vital relationship with humankind. To record her observations, Sophie creates a personal bestiary and, as she relates the strange abilities of these endangered beings, her tales become extraordinary meditations on love, sex, evolution, extinction, truth, and self-knowledge. In the tradition of E.O. Wilson s "Anthill, Invisible Beasts" is inspiring, philosophical, and richly detailed fiction grounded by scientific fact and a profound insight into nature. The fantastic creations within its pagesan ancient animal that uses natural cold fusion for energy, a species of vampire bat that can hear when their human host is lying, a continent-sized sponge living under the ice of Antarcticailluminate the role that all living creatures play in the environment and remind us of what we stand to lose if we fail to recognize our entwined destinies.
